He Named Me Malala: A FREE screening for middle and high school students
Friday October 9 at 4:30 pm at the Landmark Sunshine movie theater
143 E Houston Street in Manhattan
The Anne Frank Center USA, in partnership with the Malala Fund, Participant Media and FOX Searchlight, would like to invite you to a special, free screening of the new documentary He Named Me Malala about activist, student and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai and her fight for education for all girls worldwide.
As a young teenager, Malala Yousafzai was targeted for speaking out on behalf of girls’ education in her region of Swat Valley in Pakistan. At age 15 she was shot in the head while on the bus to school with friends, sparking international media outrage. Building on her activism in Pakistan, Yousafzai has since emerged as a leading global campaigner for the educational rights of girls worldwide.
In an effort to inform students about the challenges many of their peers around the world face in gaining access to education, The Anne Frank Center USA and the Students Stand With Malala campaign are offering middle and high school classes FREE tickets to see He Named Me Malala.
This special opportunity will be held on Friday, October 9 at 4:30 pm at the Landmark Sunshine movie theater at 143 E Houston Street in Manhattan to mark International Day of the Girl.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with staff from The Anne Frank Center and the Malala Fund, and students like you.
We hope your school will join students and teachers around the globe as they STAND WITH MALALA
